Last Difficulty .in "Way of Sale and
Approval of Notes Itemoved,
Say County Officials Plan
for riant Is Rejected.
A friendly suit will not be necessary
to establish the legality of Multnomah
County's $1,250,000 road bond issue. The
legal difficulty which has stood in the
way of full recognition of the validity
of the bonds was swept away yesterday
when District Attorney Evans received
the following telegram from Storey.
Thorndike, Ptilmer & Dodge, the Boston
attorneys who had brought up the point
that proof of the proper posting- of spe
cial election notices was lacking::
"Telegram received. We waive re
quirements regarding; proof of election
In a letter to Mr. Evans early In the
week these attorneys, whose favorable
opinion is guaranteed to bidders for the
ronds, had declared it would be neces
sary to obtain Affidavits from election
of Ho! a Is that the notices were properly
posted. This would have Involved get
ting 2843 affidavits, an obvious impos
fclblllty. A friendly suit to test the
validity of the bonds would have been
the only alternative.
Coorfi Order Clears Difficulty.
Arthur A. Murphy, Deputy District
Attorney, however, in a telegram sent
Wednesday night, called the attention
of the Boston attorneys to a. section ot
the road act which makes a formal
declaration of the result of a bond elec
tion by the County Court proof of the
regularity of the election. He also cited
court decisions. .
"The answer of Storey, Thorndike,
Palmer & Dodge shows they accept our
view and clears up the situation," said
District Attorney Evans last nigrht.
"The only remaining- objections to the
bonds are mere formalities which can
be settled in a few days."

The plan for the county to do its
own paving- was definitely turned down
by the County Commissioners yesterday
when R. S. Dulin and R. G. McMullen.
of the City Engineer's office, who has
submitted the proposal, were notified
that they could bid with other contrac
tors if they desired.
Engineers' Proposal Refused.
Messrs. Dulin and McMullen submit; ed
exhaustive figures on the paving; ques
tion yesterday morning-. They showed
just what it wo,uld cost the county to
lay Its own pavement according; to the
specifications for every type as adopted
by the city. They asserted In their pre
vious proposal to the Commissioners
that all the paving could be laid n.t an
approximate cost of 60 cents a square
yard if the county would spend about
150,000 to build a paving plant. They
asked that. If their proposal was ac
cepted, they be employed as engineers
at $-00 a month each.
The Commissioners directed that Mr.
Dulin and Mr. McMullen be notified that
the county did not care to take up their
plan, but that they could bid with con
tractors If they wished to do so.
"I don't think it advisable to experi
ment in a new business with the coun
ty's money." was the explanation of

low Mr. Daly's Plan. Project
Would Take 215 Tears.
Issuance and sale of not less than
$500,000 In 25-year 4 per cent water
bonds is the only way City Commis
sioner Daly will be able to install
water meters on all services in the city
under the city-wide meter plan which
will be voted on at the city election
June 7. Recent water rate reductions
have reduced the city's total water
revenue so that for the present year
and subsequent years, according to the
water bureau's -figures, the annual sur
plus of funds from revenue will be
about $37,000. Meters for the 3000 new
water services each year would cost
$34,000, leaving only $3000 available for
installing meters on 43.000 unmetered
services. This would buy 200 meters,
and in 215 years the entire 43,000
would be installed.
Commissioner Daly, however, avers
that It is his intention to install the
meters from current revenue.
The total amount of Interest paid by
water users or outstanding bonds at
present is $315,760 a year. In addition
a total of $140,880 is placed each year
in a sinking fund to redeem these
Donas, making their total cost $456,640

Skews to Be Heavy Flans for
Los Angeles Meeting Made.
After hearing tho report .of J. W.
Hammond, chairman of the "wood
block" committee, the Portland Realty
Board . yesterday decided not to make
any recommendaflon as to what char
acter of pavement should be used in
hard surfacing the 70 miles of county
road ordered at the recent bond elec
tion. "In the East wood block pavement
has proved much more successful than
on the Pacific Coast," said Mr. Ham
mond. "This is due, no doubt, to the
fact that Eastern cities have utilized
their best quality of lumber and have
been more liberal in the employment
of the supplementary material, creosote.
I believe the Board should indorse the
wood block pavement as used in the
Mr. Hammond reported that the wood
block pavement costs at least twice as
much as the hard-suriace materials.
The motion that no recommendation be
made was put by Henry W. Fries.
